AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'‘Instinct has kept us alive so far. It’s like a compass in my gut and I tune into the needle often: trust/don’t trust, run/stay. The winter has brought out the animal within all of us and we teeter between predator and prey, trying to find the balance of humanity between the two. I can’t read the needle right now. The warmth of the room is clouding my judgment.

'Lucy, Fin and Max flee Sydney in the aftermath of a nuclear winter and find comfort and refuge with a small settlement in the southern bushlands. There’s much relief in a warm bed and a full stomach, but soon Lucy begins to question the community’s ideals. Maybe they’re not as safe as they think?' (Publication summary)
